Seperate topic to the tactical stuff but is anyone generally frustrated by how we seem to chop and change game by game even after we win games or the way certain players get binned after one or two bad games and how we never really know what is our de facto starting XI for say a big fixture? Now I know we are the so called versatile team which changes our tactics depending on who we face but honestly Jose sides at his best you tended to know what his best XI would be or at least know what his plan B is. It honestly feels like we make it up as we go along when it comes to team selections at times and yes injuries haven't helped but there is an awful lot of chopping and changing and it says a lot when even a defensive shambles like Liverpool have now almost got a set back 4 which they're using week in week out but they have the same front three which means attacking wise there is consistent link up play and patterns and players get to know each other whereas at United it's so chaotic.. the one thing we had going was the Rashford/Martial thing but at least we knew they're similar in profile but then that was binned halfway through for Sanchez and selections have become even more chaotic and the midfield now is also even more chop and change since the Pogba saga. Then we get something good going with McTominay and Matic.. then completely switch it up for a guy who has barely featured all season for a huge CL game at home. We also had the Shaw is coming good again, let's reintegrate him and give him a new contract and then he's been benched again with no game time since Young is back. Without letting Shaw play his way out of the team first. I know tactics etc is a big feature of my usual threads but doesn't matter how good your philosophy and coaching is.. if you're not playing the same sort of side for most games, they're going to play like strangers on the pitch and especially in midfield and attack.. you need to have that deep connection and know each other's attributes and runs intuitively (but that comes from lots of game time together too). Thoughts?
